Description

Although Lexi dieted and exercised through standard childhood obesity programs, she could not lose weight. She and her parents were blamed for her high weight. But a medical evaluation showed that she was essentially healthy and her weight was a symptom of metabolic dysfunction. The dieting and exercise only added to this dysfunction over the long term.
